The U.S. Department of Defense has given rave reviews of billionaire Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite internet service and the effectiveness it has already shown in defeating Russian electronic warfare attacks in Ukraine.

Dave Tremper, the director of electronic warfare for the Pentagon’s acquisition office noted how Starlink quickly shut down a Russian jamming effort just one day after it was detected. Temper said Musk’s satellite-internet service simply inserted a new line of code, “and suddenly that [Russian jamming attack] was not effective anymore.”
